Listening to and learning from young people – MP Clive Lewis visits MAP

South Norwich MP Clive Lewis recently visited MAP to learn more about our work and to hear the views of 21 young people, including Young Commissioners from Norfolk’s Youth Advisory Board, Young Leaders who have taken part in MAP’s Youth Work activities and young people who have used MAP’s drop-in services.

Clive Lewis spent time with senior leaders from MAP’s advice, youth work and therapeutics services teams to learn more about how we – as a charity, as individuals and as a society – can address the challenges facing young people today.   He went on to have an extensive Q&A session with the group of young people, responding to questions about the EU referendum, the lowering of the voting age, the need for better Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) in schools and the injustice of the lower minimum wage rate for under 25s.

“Thanks again to MAP for letting me visit their centre the other day, and for taking this fantastic photo of the occasion.” said Clive.

“Once more, my wholehearted praise goes out to everyone who supports MAP in the work they do to help young people in Norwich meet their full potentials. I hope to continue working with MAP, and other local charities, to continue – and hopefully expand on – this vital work.”
